Club career

Real Sociedad

Born in Azkoitia, Gipuzkoa, Araquistáin started his career with local Real Sociedad, playing five La Liga seasons with the club and being first-choice in four of those. He made his debut in the competition on 2 December 1956, in a 3–2 away win against Celta de Vigo.

Real Madrid

Araquistáin moved to Real Madrid for the 1961–62 season. He played 25 games in his first year, winning the double and the Ricardo Zamora Trophy in the process.

In the following years, Araquistáin was more often then not in the losing end of a battle for first-choice duties with José Vicente Train and Antonio Betancort. His best output came in the 1963–64 campaign, when he featured in 14 out of 30 league contests to help the Merengues to a third national championship in a row; on 11 May 1966 he appeared in one of his 18 European Cup matches, helping his team win that year's continental competition with a 2–1 triumph over FK Partizan.[2]

Later years

Subsequently Araquistáin represented Elche CF and CD Castellón, playing in the top flight with both sides and also attaining promotion from Segunda División with the latter. He retired in 1973, at the age of 36.

International career

Araquistáin earned six caps for Spain. He made his debut on 17 July 1960 in a 4–1 friendly win with Chile in Santiago, and was part of the squad that competed at the 1962 FIFA World Cup.

In the tournament, also held in Chile, Araquistáin played in the 1–2 group stage loss to Brazil, in an eventual group stage exit. It was to be his last international appearance.
